Christmas Spirit by Thylrienn Christmas Spirit by Thylrienn
I drew this one for the "Christmas of Reindeer's Contest" organised by Digital-Art-Fantasy  Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer 

It was also the occasion to use Easy Paint Tool SAI for the first time. I discovered the software not long ago and it's just an amazing tool for drawing & colouring! 

I haven't drawn any original manga art for a long time and maybe I lost my touch with that style Sweating a little... Please don't be harsh in your comments. Constructive feedback are welcome of course ^_^

I dedicate this drawing to my beloved Ezelkir  Tight Hug :heart:

. SAI: 80%
. Photoshop CS5: 20% (brushes, texturing, modifications)

Oh WHOAH! This is gorgeous! I love the texture on her outfit- that pattern is really well applied. I couldn't even tell that was a snowflake brush- so good job with that!! The stag's silhouette is gorgeous, and it's something that took a minute for me to see, but it adds a whole 'nother dimension to your painting. Also, kudos for getting the shading on the antlers to be so perfect- I always overwork things like that.

Wouah! Thank so much for your comment *o* I'm glad to read a comment so enthusiastic  La la la la  I'm really happy because what I'm the most proud in this drawing is the shading of the antlers Love I don't know how I was able to do that but I did it Wink/Razz  About the fabric pattern, it was very bored to do Sweating a little...  because I had to adjust each part but the result is not bad :)

YAY! Glad you liked how detailed I was getting hahah. I always liked when someone told me what they specifically liked about my art, so when I like someone I want to SPECIFY!
You really should be proud of those antlers. I bet it was boring, but the little things like the contouring of the pattern makes such a huge difference in the overall effect. Even if you don't specifically notice it, it really makes your painting look even more painstakingly done and detailed.

Yes I really appreciated your detailed feedback! And I understand your feeling :) It's really rewarding when someone tells you that the tiny detail you made is awesome :D So thank you very very much for noting all these details :huggle: It's really important for me to know that people see all these tiny details :)

Well, that's why-- I like ... watchin.. *eh-hem* stalking Suspicious Spkmw  people's artworks whether traditional/digital (including photographs).

I can't always be creativity so I have to draw from others, I hope you don't mind.. :hug:

You're welcome, it's a really "awesome" piece. Slightly jealous that you can draw and I can't! :(

But great job! ;)

Congratulation on getting 2nd place!

Thank you very much :hug: I can draw it's true but I can't make photomanipulation like you :/ I don't know how to do for creating something beautiful and consistent -_- So don't be jealous: everyone has a great skill that the others have not ;)

Photomanipulation is easier than you think, the only thing hard about it is composition.  The problem with me, being (currently) limited to just that is that it is being limiting and makes my artwork looks :grump: extremely flat. Hate it! 

... btw, when I say I can't darw... I really can't draw! TT__TT

:iconthylrienn:
Thylrienn Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2014
Yes it's precisely the composition that I can't do T.T I don't know how to organize the elements to create something pretty -_-

About drawing, I think that it's just a question of training :D But it's true that people have not the same abilities to learn quickly.

What do you mean :O_o: you don't know "composition", you composed this quite beautifully! ^^;

I've been trying, well not really ;P... but I will, I'm stil trying to master some techniques with graphic design. As soon as I get it, I'll start doing digital drawings. My base will be graphic design :D

Oh I mean that in photomanipulation, I just don't know how to organize the different elements to make something harmonious ^^" In drawing, all the elements are mine, they are the same style. In photomanipulation, you have to put together varied elements. I don't know if you understand well what I want to say you :p

I hope that you will succes in improving digital drawing :D

Thank you very much! You're so kind :huggle: It's a long time I didn't draw something in manga style xD I'm glad that you like my Christmas Spirit :) I think that drawing in semi-realistic style & using SAI helped me to improve my colorization.
